05/26, 8:50am

Both Apple and HP concerned over Foxconn deaths

Apple and HP together said they were investigating whether harsh working conditions at Foxconn were triggering a rash of suicides at the Chinese manufacturer. Following a ninth death, the two are launching independent checks to verify and possibly pressure Foxconn into following certain labor rights guidelines. Apple was the most vocal in its concern; it's "saddened and upset" at the suicides and is taking action, according to spokesman Steve Dowling.
